Hi Rblamkin,

There are no ramifications to speak of. Once you've purchased a home as "owner occupied", you are free to make the decision to move out and rent the property at a later date. Your mortgage does not commit you to keeping the property "owner occupied for the life of the loan. ... more

If we broke up and I decided to exercise my option of buying her out, I would let her live there for 3 months in which I would cover the entire house payment. of which I would pay her half of the money owed to her up front and the other half after the 3 months is up.

Does that sound like a fair contract? Would the bank accept a contract like that?

I will try and answer your question with some experiences I have had.

As with most agents, I normally do not take clients that are not pre-qualified.
These two clients somewhat begged and pleaded and promised to work on their pre-qual soon and I took them on as clients mainly because they were friends.

The first client we looked at an area for $400K-$500K homes as she told me this was her budget. After about 6 outings she finally got her pre-qualified and it was for $700K. She was surprised at the higher amount and totally lost interest in the area we had been searching in and started looking elsewhere. A positive ending except for the fact we wasted 6 days in the wrong area and price.

The second client I showed her around about 6 times as well and for her budget price of @ $300K. On that 6th time, she found her dream house and finally then did she apply for a pre-qual. I called and called her the next few weeks inquiring as to how the pre-qual was going. I didn't get a hold of her for two months. After I did get a hold of her she mentioned she was told she had real bad credit, was denied, and it would take her over a year to fix her credit report. A negative spin and 6 days of our time wasted.

A pre-qual informs you as well as the agent what your real budget is so you don't waste your time as well as his. Showing clients properties take about 4 hours each outing. If you go out with an agent just 6 times that's about 24 hours that is wasted if you end up not qualifying or qualify for a different amount than what you were looking for. Getting a pre-qual also lets people know you are serious about buying a home.

Let me ask you a question. I understand you are not ready to buy until December but there is no penalty in getting a pre-qual early so why are you not trying to get pre-qualified?

Hi Mertak,

Trulia IS NOT an MLS. Trulia is a "data syndicator".

The best move you can make now is to team with a Realtor® in the target area you are searching so you have access to TRUE MLS information (and I highly recommend an automated search, which your Realtor® can provide).

If you plan on "going it alone" please review the following post:

MLS Data Accuracy – Where to search if you’re “without Realtor®”

Hi there William,

I believe that this property is a 2 bedroom, 1 bathroom apartment. If that doesn't answer your question, can you please clarify what your question is? I'm more than happy to help.

I don't know if you can really fight the fees. What I DO recommend is for you to get actively involved in the HOA. Learn about how the money is being spent and use your influence to cut back when possible. ... more

Hi Fnoclaf1,

If you mean your earnest money deposit (not your down payment), you should be able to get it back as long as your loan contingency has NOT been removed in writing.

Why don't you speak to someone to someone personally who can examine your entire financial picture? You will get a much better sense of what you need to do in order to buy.

If I tell you to CANCEL and fight; and it turns out that it was a lot of BS and rhetoric that was done to keep the politicians happy; what are you going to do?

If you stay the course, sell it on a Shortsale and realize later that it was true and you could have saved your house and your Credit.....

This is a no-win for anyone giving you advice:
Do you see that?
